48 States

Oil 46″ x 48″ *

When I was born in 1947, there were 48 states.

When I went to art school, it was the height of the 60’s, when psychedelia was the style. A few years passed and the glow of those times was dampened by factors you and I know all too well.

At 48, I made this self portrait as an exploration of my self, from a photo I took on self timer as i sat at my kitchen island in the loft in Tribeca, where we lived for 12 years after moving to New York from Newton, Massachusetts.
